More about Reconstruction in Mississippi
This book was written by a "Fellow of Columbia University" and "Member of The Mississippi Historical Society" and published by McMillan Co, London. Due to this derivation I consider the work to be more scholarly based than other histories of reconstruction in the state.
There is a table of contents and a detailed index, which helps to place it among the more important historical works of Mississippi. Garner discusses the era from a political, military, social perspective, along with a brief history of the Civil War.
